Conflicting views guys and I know I failed to drop the main man in there Bill Shankly. But my main point is the way rotation's kicked in now which I feel affects consistency. As one reply said, the players turned out 70 times season and the team spirit seemed to thrive. Yeah, more competitions now and all, but look at the facilities now. The best of injury tending technology, they fly guys all over the world no expense spared. The pitches they play on in most cases are fantastic, but all you ever hear about is who's out and for how many weeks. Maybe there's too much emphasis in treating these guys like film stars rather than athletes.
i agree our best team should be played regularly, altho benitez's idea of our best team is probably different to that of 99% of liverpool fans. we will never win the league under benitez because of this!
